Signs featuring Muslim superhero used to cover up anti-Islam group’s hateful bus ads

Published

on

Anti-Muslim bus advertisements in San Francisco are being covered up by anti-bigotry messages featuring a Muslim comic book superhero.

The original advertisements, placed on the sides of MUNI buses by blogger Pamela Geller’s American Freedom Defense Initiative, compare Muslims to Nazis and claim the Koran orders followers to hate Jews.

“Stop the hate,” the ads say. “End all U.S. aid to Islamic countries.”

Those ads have been covered by improvised signs that show Kamala Khan, a Pakistani-American Marvel Comics superhero, encouraging commuters to “stop the hate” by sending love to Islamic countries.

“Free speech isn’t a license to spread hate,” one sign reads.

Others argue that “Islamophobia hurts us all” and urges “bigotry busters” to “stamp out racism.”

It’s not clear who posted the pro-Islam messages over the original ads.

Geller claimed that the San Francisco Metropolitan Transportation Agency, which she said accepted her group’s money only after they filed a lawsuit to run the advertisements, allowed her anti-Muslim organization’s signs to be defaced.

“It is remarkable how quick the Muslim community and the left are to deface/destroy our ads of truth,” she complained. “The vicious anti-Jewish ads that the Muslims and/or the uber-left run across the country always remain untouched.”

The New York-based blogger posted personal contact information for an SFMTA official and sales representative and encouraged her readers to lodge complaints, and she also said her group would sue if they weren’t compensated or given free advertising space.

"Mr. DeSantis, a Republican, has directed his top fund-raiser, Heather Barker, to tell donors not to give to the convention because of a personal dispute between the governor and Susie Wiles, his former campaign manager who is serving as an informal adviser to the convention planners, according to multiple people familiar with his actions," the Times' Annie Karni and Patricia Mazzei write.
